IN FO­CUS Night At The Mu­seum

ZbBZ (Singapore) - - 海角漫游 TRAVEL - NG KING KANG/ Ca’ Sa­gredo Ho­tel Campo Santa Sofia 30121 Ca’ D’Oro Venezia, Italy +39-041-2413111

The 42-room Ca’ Sa­gredo Ho­tel, a mem­ber of the Small Lux­ury Ho­tel group, is like a time-travel ma­chine, whisk­ing you back to the 15th cen­tury once you step in­side. Lean­ing ma­jes­ti­cally on the banks of the Grand Canal, look­ing di­rectly across the wa­ter at the Rialto Mar­ket and l ocated be­tween Ca’ D’Oro and the Rialto Bridge, the an­cient palace has been de­clared a Na­tional Mon­u­ment in Venice and still pre­serves the un­touched beauty of a noble res­i­dence that oozes old world lux­ury.

Once owned by the Morosini fam­ily, the palace was pur­chased by the Sa­gre­dos at the start of the 18th cen­tury. The ho­tel now func­tions partly like a mu­seum with ex­quis­ite ar­chi­tec­tural touches and sur­pris­ing art­works in ev­ery cor­ner.

A se­cond storey was added to the palace and the walls of the new stair­case were dec­o­rated by Pi­etro Longhi in 1734 with a fresco rep­re­sent­ing The Fall Of The Gi­ants, in­spired by Gi­ulio Ro­mano’s Bat­tle Of The Gi­ants for the Palazzo del Te in Man­tua.

At the same time, the in­te­rior was lux­u­ri­ously cov­ered by artists Ab­bon­dio Stazio and Car­po­foro Mazzetti Te­calla with stucco work, much of which is still in place. A stun­ning high­light to check out is the main art­work in the gilded Mu­sic Ball­room, where Apollo ap­pears on his sun cart. Be­sides the artis­tic her­itage of the Palace, Ca’ Sa­gredo will also al­low you to in­dulge your pas­sion for Venice and your love for the best food and wine. Its L’Alcova Restau­rant, with its splen­did panoramic ter­race on the Grand Canal, is open all year round to of­fer cui­sine based on lo­cal Vene­tian tra­di­tions and is yet an­other elo­quent ex­pres­sion of Mediter­ranean cre­ativ­ity.

Ca’Sa­gre­do酒店坐落在一座15世纪的威尼斯宫殿内,其外观严格来说并不起眼,

若不是从火车站搭船过去,经过也不会特别留意。

但一踏入酒店大堂,目光即刻被富丽堂皇的内饰给吸引住。大堂从楼梯、天花板到

墙壁,处处都是历史悠久的艺术作品,比如由18世纪意大利艺术家彼得罗隆吉(Pi­etro

Longhi)装饰的楼梯,以及由马泽蒂(Car­po­foro Mazzetti Te­calla)和斯塔齐奥

(Ab­bon­dio Stazio)的画作布置的内饰。其公共区和部分客房还摆放着许多昔日著名

的威尼斯艺术家杰作。最让人叹为观止的是二楼的音乐厅,从墙壁到天花板的每一寸空

间都是画,点缀天花板的是太阳神阿波罗。

这座宫殿原是萨格雷多(Sa­gredo)贵族的宅邸,五个世纪以来其历史与艺术气

息都保存在这时间囊里,已被列为国宝建筑。Ca’Sa­gre­do虽是全球奢华精品酒店的一

员,但与其他成员酒店相比,

它更像一座博物馆,42间客

房的艺术氛围浓得化不开,设

计以典型的威尼斯豪华装饰为

主,每个角落都是价值不菲的

古董家具和原创艺术品,在里头住一宵,就像是在博物馆过一夜。

酒店没有泳池和健身室等现代设施,但其餐馆 L’Al­co­v­a的美酒佳肴足

以弥补这一缺憾。在面对大运河的环境中享用地道威尼斯大餐,尤其是在

黄昏时分,不失为人生一大享受。

酒店位置适中,可俯瞰大运河,地处Ca’D’Oro与Rial­to大桥之间,距

离圣马可教堂(St Mark’s Basil­ica)不过15分钟步行路程,难得的是地点

避开了喧闹的人群集中地,咫尺间都是迷人的羊肠小径,称得上是隐藏的

瑰宝。
